Back in February I posted a photo from the early 1930s of a group of campers from Camp Dellwood. Since then I’ve heard from three people who attended or worked at the camp. Margaret Crum, who is the daughter-in-law of the last owners of the camp let me know that it closed in 1973.
And a former camper sent me these great photos taken from her time at the camp, the late 60s and early 70s. According to her, the campers wore white on Sundays. It looks like from the photos, that there were no other real restrictions on dress; the girls are wearing sportswear typical of the times. No middies and bloomers for this bunch of modern girls! Some of them do seem to wearing proper riding attire, but who could resist the opportunity to wear those great boots?!

I truly enjoyed seeing this page. When I saw the first picture, I was absolutely positive that the second child from the front was me. Then I saw that the contributing camper attended Dellwood over a decade after I did. Oh well! Cheers, Bev
